Love Cbus, in partnership with 104.9 the River, is looking to tackle this issue facing the community. We are inviting River listeners to a free showing of Heroin’s Grip and a panel discussion of leading experts on how we can work together to help individuals and families that are being confronted with opioid addiction. Adult & Teen Challenge will have a booth at the event to share information about our services.
More about the documentary – Heroin’s Grip
Heroin’s Grip is a powerful 67 minute documentary film that tells the story of the heroin epidemic in Maryland, focusing on Frederick County. It explores stories of addiction from the perspective of four families who have been impacted by this epidemic… the film takes a look at the problem of addiction though the eyes of local law enforcement officers, mental health workers, community leaders and others in order to get a complete picture of the impact that heroin and opioid addiction has on our community.
Heroin’s Grip also helps the viewer better understand what happens in the brain when heroin and other opioids are used, and shows the story of a few who are succeeding in overcoming addiction and maintaining a life free from drugs and alcohol. Our goal is to show that help is available, and that there is a way out of addiction and that there are resources available for families and individuals caught up in the tragedy. There is hope.
